Worst NBA MVP Winners

The Top Ten

LeBron James 2008-2009 LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers.

Let me just say something. This list is one of the worst sports list on the TopTens. It brings this feeling like these players are bad. No MVP winners are bad or else they wouldn't of even been in the MVP discussion. While one player may of been more deserving, it doesn't mean the other player didn't deserve it. Plus some people on this list only take in stats and clout. There is a lot more factors in deciding a MVP. This is why this list is horrible. I suggest not voting on it.

Yao Ming should've won

Wade is better Whyy

No just no

Derrick Rose 2010-2011 Derrick Martell Rose is an American professional basketball player for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association.

Derrick Rose is just a bigger allen inverson and we all know how that turned out. The bulls recent wins look much easier without him taking 30 shots a game including several poor 3point shot selections.

I think D Rose sucks... I am better than him because I at least have legs Also he was a one year wonder

Just because y'all don't know him doesn't mean he isn't good.

He wan not even that good

Steve Nash 2004-2005

Steve Nash did deserve it. He led a nothing team to the conference finals both years and if he wasn't their shaq wouldn't have led them to the playoffs at all

This is by far the worst. Shaq was way better and kobe should have won the other one gifted to him. Never the best pg in the game, let alone best player

You can't win an mvp averaging 15 points an 10 assists

Plain and simple no defensive

Dirk Nowitzki 2006-2007 Dirk Werner Nowitzki is a German professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.

Kobe had arguably the best scoring season in the nba history(behind wilt 50 point average). Over 20 occasions where he score more than 40 points and more than five 60+ points occasions not to mention the 81 points

Should have won: Kobe Bryant

Yes its true, they did get spunked by the Warriors in the playoffs but in the regular season Dirk led his team to a record-breaking franchise 67-15 record in the league so he DEFINITELY deserved the award

Steve Nash 2005-2006

Just because he's Kobe and led his team to the playoffs doesn't matter at all. He lost in the first round to Steve nash

Kobe should have won this one. Criminal for anyone else to win it

Clearly wasn't the best that year. Should have been given to Kobe

Winner: Steve Nash
Should have won: Kobe Bryant

Tim Duncan 2001-2002 Timothy Theodore "Tim" Duncan is an American professional basketball player who has played his entire career for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association.

Winner: Tim Duncan
Should have won: Jason Kidd

Karl Malone 1996-1997 Karl Anthony Malone is an American retired professional basketball player. Nicknamed "The MailMan", Malone played the power forward position and spent his first 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association with the Utah Jazz and formed a formidable duo with his teammate John Stockton.

Should have won: Michael Jordan

Karl Malone 1998-1999 Karl Anthony Malone is an American retired professional basketball player. Nicknamed "The MailMan", Malone played the power forward position and spent his first 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association with the Utah Jazz and formed a formidable duo with his teammate John Stockton.

Winner: Karl Malone
Should've been: Alonzo Mourning or Tim Duncan

Winner: Karl Malone
Should have won: Allen Iverson

Kobe Bryant 2007-2008

Kobe is an alligator. He don't want to pass the ball to his teammates.

I just don't like Kobe.

Cp3 took a dismal hornets squad to a 56-26 record

Winner: Kobe Bryant
Should have won: Chris Paul

Bill Russell 1961-1962 William Felton "Bill" Russell is an American retired professional basketball player. Russell played center for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association from 1956 to 1969.

Wilt Chamberlain averaged 50 points a night. enough said.

Winner: Bill Russell
Should have won: Wilt Chamberlain

The Contenders

Stephen Curry 2014-2015 Wardell Stephen Curry II is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. Many players and analysts have called him the greatest shooter in NBA history. He is one of the most beloved, as well as hated, stars in the NBA today.

I wonder, is 24 points and 8 assist sound familiar, Damian pillars a year later exept he got no all star aperance when he had one less assist and more points and carried his team to 5th in the west.

All he does is shoot, and have minutes, Lebron should of won it or Anthony Davis

The brow was the best player

He sucks

LeBron James 2011-2012 LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers.

The reason why the thunder lost to heat in the finals is because the team was to young

KD should of got it

Yeah no doubt Durant should have won that year but Durant didn't make a big enough contribution in the playoffs

Winner: LeBron James
Should Have Won: Kevin Durant

Michael Jordan 1991-1992

Winner: Michael Jordan
Should have won: Clyde Drexler

Stephen Curry 2015-2016

He averaged 30 points and won 73 games he clearly shouldn't be on this list.

Choked in the finals best point guard my ass overraged

Only fame saved him that's all

Great choice, but he should be at the top, not LBJ23

Allen Iverson 2000-2001

Winner: Allen Iverson
Should have won: Shaquille O'Neal

James Harden 2017-2018

Harden is great and do not agree plus lebron is a 3 time traitor because he went from the cavs to the heat to the cavs again then to the lakers oh sorry that's four times.

Winner: James Harden
Should have won: Lebron James
Lebrons Team Stunk and Still They Made It To The Finals
Chris Paul Carried Harden

Russell Westbrook 2016-2017

There were eight players that could have been solid picks, and Westbrook was none of them.
